I always enjoy it that I get to announce new releases to our customers and the world. This latest release… version 2016 Service Release 2 (SR2) is a very special one. Why? For new and enhanced functionality? Yes. For improved performance and capability? For sure. For the issues that have been resolved? Of course. But there’s one thing more- something that’s unique to this release. Something you’ll notice as soon as you install it and fire it up. Have you guessed? Read on! (more…)
One of the things I always enjoy about my role is getting to showcase the latest output of our stellar development team. In the new version just released, Polarion 2016 SR1, we have focused less on introducing new features and more on enhancement of existing features, especially in Test Management and LiveDocs. We also put a lot of efforts into things around performance and scalability – something we will continue to do. So with that in mind, let’s jump in and see what’s in this release. (more…)
I’m very pleased to announce the release of yet another new major version of Polarion… version 2016. It’s the first one since we became a Siemens company, and one thing I hope you will notice is… nothing has changed. Oh there are new features and enhancements of course. But our R&D still employs enterprise agile principles, enabling us to release frequently, faster, and with better customer satisfaction.
We will still have a “service release” (SR) each quarter that not only contains issue fixes and feature enhancements, but also includes complete new features if they are fully implemented, tested, and documented, and they do not significantly change the way people have been trained to use the last Polarion major version. All the new features released in the SRs roll up into our next major version, which when released, also includes new features and functionality.
I’m happy to announce the first Polarion release since the announcement of our acquisition by Siemens: Polarion version 2015 SR3. This is the last planned service release for version 2015. As some of you know, all the new features and improvements delivered this year roll up to comprise the next major version – Polarion 2016. That means that most of what’s in Polarion 2016 (and every new major version) has already been rolled out and used in production by many of our customers, so you can consider updating with a pretty high degree of confidence. But let’s talk about the current release and see what’s new and noteworthy. (more…)
After months of hard work on the part of Polarion’s R&D team, we’ve released the second planned service release for Polarion version 2015: Polarion 2015 SR2. In this post I’ll share with you the most important new functionality and improvements. There’s actually quite a bit, as some things have been in development for several release cycles and are ready for release now. So let’s get started. (more…)

The time has come to announce the release of Polarion version 2015. It’s an ambitious release with some very significant new functionality. If you would ask me to name the top new features (as some people already have!) I guess I would call them this way… (more…)
This is the last addition to our Polarion 2015 release cycle. As you might be aware, Polarion R&D follows the principles of enterprise agile methodology, which enables us to release frequently, faster, and with better customer satisfaction.
We have a “service release” (SR) each quarter, and as the name suggests, it contains issue fixes and feature enhancements. But service releases also include complete new features if they are fully implemented, tested, and documented, and they do not significantly change the way people have been trained to use the last Polarion major version.
All the new features released in the SRs roll up into our next major version, which when released, also includes new features and functionality. So what you will see here are the enhancements published since our last service release Polarion 2014 SR3.

So now let’s go through the final additions to Polarion 2015…
As winter sets in (here in our northern hemisphere location at least), we wrap up another year with a service release: Polarion 2014 SR3. The update is free to customers with a current maintenance agreement. As with all our releases, the features and improvements we introduce in service release roll up into the next major version, in this case, Polarion 2015. I invite you to check out what’s coming your way in that version on our 2015 Early Access microsite.
Meantime, let me provide here an overview of the main new features, improvements, and fixes for the 2014 SR3 release. (more…)
